Sri Azhagiya Singa Perumal (Narasimhar ) Temple-Kanchipuram (Thiruvelukkai)
Thiru Velukkai is one of the 108 divya desam temples situated in Kanchipuram. "Vel" means wish and "Irukkai" means seat. Since the Lord Himself wished to stay there to help his bhakthas, this place is known as "Vellukkai", "Thiru Vellukkai". The legend behind the place Thiru Velukkail goes like this. When asuras (demons) became rampant and started to threaten the man kind, Lord Vishnu in His Narasimha avatar chased them away. He settled in this beautiful place out of his own wish.
